This is a question Cars

"Here in my car", said 80s pop hero Gary Numan, "I feel safest of all". He obviously never shared the same stretch of road as me, then. Automotive tales of mirth and woe, please.

« Go Back

My mate parked up
and when he came back, some parking bloke had just stuck a ticket on the car. The reason was that his car was just slightly hanging out of the parking bay and onto the start of the yellow lines.

After trying to make the traffic warden see reason, which was completely futile, my mate suddenly resigned to receiving the ticket, got into his car and drove off.

The reason he gave in so easily? He noticed that the reg number on the ticket was wrong.

It does make me wonder
who got the ticket. Probably someone at the far end of the country.

I know someone who parks pretty much where they like.
When he sees a traffic warden trying to ticket his car, he says,
"It's alright, your mate said it would be ok for ten minutes."
If pushed further,
"Look, I gave him a tenner, I'm not giving you one as well!"
At this point they usually just walk away!

What about when he gets a ticket, and he isn't there?

He was lucky
